Sofia's suggested changes make sense to me.  Since this technique was 
suggested by a comment from David - I would like to hear his opinion.  I 
think that making it more generic makes sense as long as David's original 
concern about image text is covered (which it is in example 2 below). 

Here is  HTML code  that  we could use for example 1:

<style type="text/css">
.sectionTitle {
        font-family:"Century Schoolbook", Times, serif;
        font-size:24pt;
        font-weigt:bolder;
}
</style>

<div class="sectionTitle">Introduction</div>
<p>This introduction provides detailed information about how to use this 
........

RE: Please Review  failure technique for issue 1531







I think this technique needs to be more general and then include an
example of a use of an image without appropriate markup.

For example:

Title:
"Failure of 1.3.1 due to using changes in text presentation to convey
information without using the appropriate markup."

Description:
"The objective of this technique is to describe how using text shown
with a presentation that gives that text special meaning without also
including the semantic markup is a failure. This includes text within
the HTML or text within images."

Failure example 1:
[example of text in HTML styled with increased font size and weight,
without heading markup]

Failure example 2:
[example of image of text without heading markup]


What do you think?

Sofia

Subject: Please Review failure technique for issue 1531


At the December 21 WCAG meeting I took an action item to create the
failure required  by the resolution to issue 1531 [1].  I have drafted,
Failure of 1.3.1 due to using images of text to convey information
without
using the appropriate markup [2] in the WCAG Wiki.   I followed the
format
of  another 1.3.1 failure, F2: Failure of SC 1.3.1 and 1.3.4 due to
using
CSS to create variations in presentation of text that conveys
information
without also using the appropriate markup or text, [3] and I modified
the
title to better match that failure as well.

Please review the new failure technique and comment on the title change
from "Failure of 1.3.1 due to using images of text to create style
effects
without using the appropriate markup. "  to "Failure of 1.3.1 due to
using
images of text to <modify>convey information</modify> without using the
appropriate markup. "
